Why I want to hike the Appalachian Trail

  • it’s a challenge – physical, mental, and emotional
  • change – of environment, of pace, of…  everything
  • school burnout – good-bye textbooks, hello hands-on learning
  • to gain experience and knowledge about the wilderness – for me and for my career
  • following suit- my inspiring cousins, Arwen and Heather, started their successful thru-hike when I was thirteen. they planted the seed and now it just won’t go away
  • the AT seems to be the safest, closest, and most accessible adventure to take while still leaving home and challenging myself
  • I get to go with one of my favorite people in the whole world
  • I want to be cold, wet, dirty, and alone – and still happy to be me
